Brief Answer:
As discussed in details.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your partial feedback.
If there is a marble like lump in the neck which can not be moved easily, the most probable cause is a lymph node.
This can be confirmed by the following things:
Ultrasonography and FNAC that is fine needle aspiration cytology.
Clinical evaluation by a Surgeon.
For the lump in the scrotum, I would advise you the following:
Ultrasonography with color doppler of the scrotum to know the exact diagnosis and thus be assured.

I hope this answer helps you.
Please feel free to ask for further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.

Welcome back,

This is not regarded as serious unless proved otherwise.
FNAC can be done by the Surgeon either at his office or even at Pathologist's office, please get this confirmed by your Doctor.
